I am all about details, so when I'm entering credits into the wiki, you can be damn sure that they are accurate to the letter. And yeah, 99.9% of the people in the "Special Thanks" part will never be of any use to future GB readers, but there just might be that one awesome time that some person is thanked somewhere that someone wants to know about, and they'll find that on this very site maybe thanks to my weird obsessive past time.
But I've run into a conflict. The backer rewards of almost every kickstarter at usually a pretty cheap level offer a space in the "Special Thanks" part of the game's credits. This will lead to 100s if not 1,000s of names of people who (aside from their generous donations) have nothing at all to do with the creation of the game.
So the easy thing to do is just leave that part out completely. But the problem with that then is we'd be missing out on listing backers who are involved with the greater games industry, and therefore connections that someone might care about. For example, I'm pretty sure Ryan helped back a kickstarter or two, and I'd love to be able to see his page here forever linked to those games.
So what do you
disturbingly obsesive dedicated wiki editors think? No backers? Some? All? Nobody cares?
(yeah, probably that last one) ;)
